The head of FBN Finance says it’s a good time to invest in farmland despite record high prices.
Dan English says farmland is a great tool to diversify investment portfolios when other markets are more volatile. “Because inflation is so high, real rates are actually negative,” he said. “That’s just the difference between what the interest rate paid by farmers is and what the inflation rate is. It’s still a relatively good investment for land.”
He says farmland performs well during inflationary periods.
